Stellantis boosts India’s EV export hub status with shipments to Indonesia

Stellantis has initiated its plan to position India as a hub for EV exports, starting with the shipment of 500 units of its ‘Citroen eC3′ electric car to Indonesia. Aditya Jairaj, CEO and MD of Stellantis India, highlighted the company’s commitment to exporting EVs and leveraging India’s manufacturing cost competitiveness.

Stellantis aims to leverage India’s cost competitiveness in manufacturing to expand its overseas shipments, particularly targeting Southeast Asian markets. Aditya Jairaj stated, “We also have plans for a couple of other markets, Nepal and Bhutan. This is just the start…the plan is to take it from there.”

Highlighting the significance of exporting the eC3, Jairaj emphasized Stellantis’ dedication to the ‘Make in India’ initiative and Citroen’s goal of promoting sustainable transportation.
